    I have been working at Xperience Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free membership, coworkers and managers are friendly, and most of the gym members are nice or keep to themselves. I also enjoy that the managers are pretty flexible when it comes to getting a day or two off once and a while.

    Cons

    lowish pay, I have another cleaning job that I make $9.50 per hr at here you only get $8.00 non negotiable. I have also had some slight issues with keeping an open line of communication with management.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee first starts make sure you communicate with a bit more and don't just leave them to figure it out by themselves or have to play 20 questions with you.

    Pros

    Production based pay. Free Membership. Great professional development opportunities. Fast paced tempo. New company means a very high chance of future upper management position

    Cons

    It is a newer company, which means there are some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on getting the right people in place, as opposed to just filling a position. Add another week of paid vacation per year per manager.

    I worked at Xperience Fitness (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Coworkers, Great clients, end of month bonuses, could apply for benefits

    Cons

    Could easily end up working 60+ hours a week, extreme sales pressure, spent more time using phones and booking appointments than actually training clients, turnover is incredibly high

    Advice to Management

    Let the sales department sell, let the training department train. I went to a gym so I could have the sales department sign clients. If I knew I needed to get all my clients by myself, I would've gone on my own.

    I worked at Xperience Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Lots of clients to start, flexible hours, great coworkers, good facility, pay was alright. Made some great friends

    Cons

    Sell, sell, sell. That is all they want you to do. They will make you cold call people to set up fitness orientations which are just to sucker them into buying personal training.

    Advice to Management

    Dont keep the focus on selling. Having close outs twice a month is super hard on trainers and doesnt enable them to fully commit to their current client load.

    I worked at Xperience Fitness full-time

    Pros

    -Pay was competitive at times -Flexible schedule and work hours -Lack of micromanagement

    Cons

    -Compensation plan changed with the wind, typically not in your favor. Often unethical and undocumented -Unrealistic sales goals with little to no support from ownership -Disorganized procurement process, vendor invoices often past due preventing future orders -Upper management and ownership were completely out of touch with what daily operations were like -Owner has bad temper and would fly off the handle on multiple occasions in front of staff and members

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was completely ineffective and out of touch regarding how to run a successful, ethical business.

    I have been working at Xperience Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    all clients were handed off to you from the sales staff, as many clients as you could handle

    Cons

    some immature co workers club manager could have been more professional

    Advice to Management

    the the club manager position, actually put someone in that position that knows how to run a fitness facility

    I worked at Xperience Fitness full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    fun people to work with when management isnt breathing down your neck. 2 hour breaks, so plenty of time for a solid workout or nap

    Cons

    150 to 250 phone calls a day to "help more people than every other gym" but mainly just needs to be done so that the doors can stay open due to low cost for a membership
